Extension Scientist

Bachelor and Master of Science (Natural Resource Management), PhD in Biology

Correctly implemented, integrated pest management (IPM) is an important tool in the fight against insect pests in grains and to avoid the evolution of insecticide resistance. There are already several powerful insecticide resistance management strategies (IRMS) available for advisors and growers. But are these management strategies broadly accepted and is IPM adopted by growers? Conny is working to answer these questions, and more, as part of her role as Extension scientist on the AGPIP project.

Conny is an agroecologist with focus on integrated pest management (IPM). She is passionate about developing sustainable pest management strategies to enhance beneficial insects and reduce pesticide applications. She completed her PhD and postdoctoral research on arthropod communities in rice agroecosystems with focus on field experiments on sustainable pest management practices in Vietnam and Cambodia.

Working for the Helmholtz-Centre for Environmental Research in Germany, she focused on an integrated pest management approach called “ecological engineering”, which aims to reduce pesticide inputs by promoting beneficial insects with additional food sources like flowers/crops (nectar and pollen) in the surrounding landscapes.

Outside of work, Conny likes to be out in nature, going for hikes, and playing sport.
